Oh, yes, it's me again with new platform wanting to use my self-signed certificate, does anyone know how to achieve this with WM7 (I've been through this with WM5, WM6.1, iOS, Symbian S60 and Symbian ^3)

yes. Every new smartphone step 1 for me is to connect to Exchange and pull all the calendar, contacts and email accross. I thought I'd just get around it but plugging into the PC and copy the certificate accross, but instead of presenting my storage as a external drive (as was the case on Touch Diamond), it appears I can only get contact onto it using Zune (I'm guessing this is MS answer to iTunes).

can you log onto your mailbox via OWA through the browser then open the attachement that way?

just use hotmail, gmail or another secondary email and send the certificate to that address as an attachment then open the attachment on the wp7 device. setting up hotmail or gmail is really very easy on wp7.

OK, used Hotmail to get the file accross (what a very unexpected outcome that had, it appears to have brought accross my Hotmail contacts into the phone, that is not something I wanted as it's my work phone). Installed the certificate but still not luck, do I have to delete and recreate the outlook connection? If so, how do I do that?

remove the outlook connection from settings then email accounts. go to hotmail email again. download and install attachment on the phone. once done then setup outlook again. after outlook is setup ok, you can then remove hotmail if you wish to which will also remove hotmail contacts from your phone.

Oh no, what have I done, doesn't support my BlueTooth keyboard, which HTC WM6.1 did support, and not Remote Desktop, I suspect I made a very poor purchase :-(

Hotmail is fine, I just want to disable the contact synchronisation, but this is not an option (although it is for exchange). How do I delete the outlook account, when I click the cross nothing happens?

windows phone 7 OS uses 'touch and hold screen for few seconds' function quite a bit in a lot of areas like music hub, pictures hub, email etc.

so go to main phone settings, then email and accounts then hold the outlook option with your finger for couple of seconds and you will see the option 'sync' and 'delete'. hit delete.

and still can not get self-signed certificate to work, error code 80072F0D, EXCEPTIONALLY disappoiunting as I expected MS to integrate seamlessly into Exchange (iPhone and N8 can). This is posibly the most disappointing test run to date!

there are few remote desktop apps available in the wp7 marketplace. some are prob trial, free, paid etc. you can download a free app called 'app tracker'. run it, type remote and you can then see reviews and see for your self which one is rated the best. you made a very good purchase. OS will only get better with updates.

is your mail setup on exchange 2010, 2007 or 2003? this will prob help.

outlook setup on my wp7 device was hassle free. really depends on the certificate you are using.
